    Catalina - macOS Features that have disappeared...and possible replacements
    I just learned that Dashboard has disappeared with macOS Catalina.
    That was noticed by a number of Mac publications back in June, for instance
    Apple will permanently remove Dashboard in macOS Catalina - The Verge

    But I just saw it today in this forum.
    There is no direct replacement available as far as I can tell

    Are there any other macOS features that were available in the say, last five macOS versions, that quietly disappeared or where functionality was crippled?

    Besides the Dashboard, which I never use anyway, iTunes has been replaced with different apps e.g. Music, TV, etc.

    Classic Layout in the Mail app is gone, I believe.

    ..and Podcasts. Was previewed during the Keynote when Catalina was announced. So this was neither quiet nor did it disappear.

    Although there is a replacement for iTunes, ie Music, functionality for certain users is lacking
    Apple’s macOS Catalina update is a big problem for DJs who relied on iTunes - The Verge

    @krs, that issue for DJs is slightly overblown. In the past, iTunes would automatically generate a XML file for the DJ playlists. Now you have to do it manually, but it can be done. Here is more: Kirkville - How to Export an XML File in the Music App in macOS Catalina

    I've been told that the Classic Layout is still there in Mail, but it's now different.

    Actually, Apple says this:

    Randy, that sounds like the Outlook layout approach. Not bad, but it is a change.
